Bowman continues as BICSI security liaision
BICSI past president Jerry L. Bowman, RCDD, RTPM, CISSP, CPP, CDCDP, has been reappointed as the association’s security liaison.
“Jerry’s current positions with IMTAS and InfraGard make him a clear choice to continue as BICSI’s security industry liaison,” said BICSI president Brian Ensign. “His extensive and unparalleled experience in the security industry will bring about many opportunities for reciprocity between other organizations and will help us offer more in the way of ESS education to our members.”
BICSI states that the convergence of security systems like access control and surveillance onto the network places much of the responsibility for future security designs into the hands of information and communications technology (ICT) professionals. Bowman’s reappointment affirms BICSI’s commitment to ICT professionals working in the electronic safety and security (ESS) field.
“BICSI plays an important and expanding role in securing critical infrastructure,” said Bowman. “I’ve seen progress as recent national security standards also recognize the value brought by BICSI professionals involved in security audits, assessments and remediation.”
Bowman is currently the chief business development officer for IMTAS, an information technology and management consulting firm serving the public sector. He is also the current president and CEO of InfraGard, the FBI’s public-private partnership.
Cultivating relationships with associations and organizations serving industries focused on IP convergence and physical infrastructure is an important aspect of BICSI’s outreach efforts. Bowman will continue to facilitate these relationships as he has over the last two years as BICSI’s Security Industry Liaison. Bowman served on the BICSI board of directors for eight years, including two years as BICSI president. During his term as BICSI president, Bowman also oversaw the signing of BICSI’s Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with ASIS International.
